Hudsonics: A Hudson Valley Poets’ Cabaret of Enactment and Performance

Date/Time

Feb 23, 2019
07:00 PM until 10:00 PM

Description

Join Host Bruce Weber with his guests, Nancy  Graham, Cole Heinowitz, Timothy Liu, Vladimir Nahitchevansky, George Quasha, Michael Ruby, Matthew Ryan Shelton, William Staples, Charles Stein and Sam Truitt in an evening of poetry and performance at Green Kill on Saturday, February 23, 2019, 7-9 PM. Tickets are 10 dollars at the door or by reservation on eventbrite.com. Seating is limited to 45.  BYOB. Light refreshments are available at Ozubar.

 

Come join in an evening of poets enacting/performing works that broach and/or breach limits—as they leave behind or open the page to the ways their imaginations have led them here. These acts will include multiple forms of collaboration with other artists: sonic acts, dance and daring. The only given tools are space, light and a microphone and, with no further amplification or the use of prerecorded material, each work will be made on the spot. This Cabaret is in part a celebration of Station Hill Press and of its publication In|Filtration: An Anthology of Innovative Poetry from the Hudson River Valley, from the lovely pages of which the Cabaret poets mostly have been culled.
